Hello Dr Habib!
first of all welcome to this group.
Regarding the queries u raised---
Iodine deficiency is not the only reason for goiter, but yes it used to be a cause for big goiters couple of years back especially in endemic areas, but still the prevalence of goiter is there (not extinct yet) after around 2 decades of iodization. the goiter still persists (the latest data is around 17% in Delhi) and majority of these goiters are goiter grade 1, 1a and occasionally grade 2.
Goiter is also seen associated with stressful conditions like Puberty and Pregnancy. in these cases one may develope physiological enlargement of thyroid gland known as physiological goiter.
Secondly goiter can be associated Graves' disease ie the classical example of hyperfunctioning of thyroid gland in iodine excess areas or ?because of excess iodine.

one more thing i forgot to add.. some time big nodules and cystic swelling in neck can be confused with goiter, even hashimoto thyroiditis causes firm feeling glands.

Dear Saurav Arora I am agree with you, that Iodine deficiency is not only cause of goiter,data provided by you satisfied my mind, Almost in every city Iodized salt used by every person, but the problem of goiter is still persisting. Indication is clear cause is something else.

now another mistery is, the cause of simple goiter and toxic goiter is same?

well to be precise in Homoeopathic terms, the cause lies beneath the layer, deep inside. it's the predisposition a man is born with, intermingled with the complexity of our environment, this interplay of man's constitution, his environment and thinking is the major cause of disease. Goiter is seen in people who have strong history of stress, familial predisposition, psoric, pseudo psoric or sycotic traits.

Message From Director General of Health

Ministry of Health Malaysia

I would like to extend my congratulations to the association of Medical Homeopathiy Practitioners and The Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia for organising the 7th International and 27th National Conference on Homeopathy and Complementary Medicine.

It cannot be denied that Traditional and Complementary Medicine (T/CM) has made significant contributions to primary health care. The increasing popularity of T/CM was attributed to the ease of procuring such services, the rapport and trust consumers enjoys with their T/CM practitioners, the holistic approach of T/CM and the belief that T/CM focuses on health and healing while conventional medicine focuses on diseases and treatment.

MOH has taken a proactive approach towards exploring ways of integrating T/CM within the national healthcare system. The success of such a move of course will depend on the willingness and ability of all stakeholders, including the community at large, medical practitioners, professional bodies, T/CM practitioners, policy makers and others, to work together to provide useful evidence-based information, in line with our National Policy on T/CM which has launched in 2001.

I am confident that this conference will generate useful information on the various aspects of the practice of T/CM worldwide and provide an opportunity for us to be acquainted with various issues related to the practice of TCM in other parts of the world.

I wish the 7th International and 27th National Conference on Homeopathy and Complementary Medicine every success and hope that all participants will find the conference both interesting and beneficial.

To all International Delegates of 18th AHML International Conference On Homeopathy & Complementary Medicine held at Malaysia in 2009

Dato Sri Liow Tiong Lai

I wish to welcome all delegates to the 18th Asian Homeopathic Medical League & 8th International Conference on Homeopathy & Complementary Medicine, Malaysia 2009

I am happy to note that Malaysia has been given the honour to host a reputable international conference on complementary medicine. It thus reflects the confidence of member countries in the ability of The Asian Homeopathic Medical League, The Malaysian Homeopathic Medical Practitioners Association, The Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia (FAHOM) and other Homeopathic associations in Malaysia to organize this event.

I understand that for the past two decades the Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia which is based in Kelantan, under the chairmanship of Prof Dr Nik Omar bin Haji Nik Daud, has been establishing and promoting this form of medication not only among the Malaysians, but also foreigners. The Malaysian Homeopathic Practitioners Association, on the other hand, has been active helping people through their volunteer services not only in Malaysia but also in Thailand, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

Today, all the members of The Asian Homeopathic medical League have come together to this conference to discuss and upgrade the standard of practice in homeopathy and complementary medicine.

I am sure that delegates attending this international conference hosted by the Open International University for Complementary Medicine will be discussing the future direction of complementary medicine. Indeed, armed with new dynamism, your group can look forward to meaningful role in improving the standard of health among the population and complementing the efforts made by the government.

I wish the conference great success.

11 American President Used Homeopathic Medicines

Do You Know That

Adakah anda ketahui bahawa 11 Orang Presiden Amerika Syarikat
Menggunakan Ubat-Ubat Homeopathy.

At least eleven American Presidents used homeopathic medicines or sponsored legislation to allow homeopathic practice (Lincoln, Tyler, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Harrison, McKinley, Coolidge, Harding, Hoover, & Clinton)...and two British Prime Ministers (Disraeli and Tony Blair).
Many world-class musicians have greatly appreciated homeopathy including Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Frédéric Chopin, Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Cher, Tina Turner, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Townshend, Annie Lennox, Bob Weir, Paul Rodgers, Axl Rose, Moby, Jon Faddis, and Dizzy Gillespie.

Numerous sports greats have bragged about their use of homeopathic medicines including David Beckham, Martina Navratilova, Boris Becker, and many more.

Numerous movie and TV celebrities have benefited from homeopathy, including early stars such as Sarah Bernhardt, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Marlene Dietrich and John Wayne… and some of the modern-day stars, including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lesley Ann Warren, Pamela Anderson, Jane Seymour, Suzanne Somers, Lindsay Wagner, Michael York, Dr. Phil and Robin McGraw, Priscilla & Lisa Marie Presley, Jennifer Aniston, Jade Jagger, Tobey Maguire, and Orlando Bloom.

Homeopathy, Are You Skeptical ?

Dear Friends,

There are many people who are skeptical about homeopathy because of its use of specific dilution methods. Homeopathy being a young growing science, many of its facets are clinically documented and tested by homeopaths but still need to be tested extensively using scientific parameters. This could make some of the criticism look valid but most of the criticism comes from people who either do not understand the philosophy of science or have not delved deep into the research evidence available so far. You read ‘opinions’ on some blogs and then start posting your own ‘opinions’ as ‘truths’ – that is not a good way for scientifically oriented brains to work. Hence, we decided to provide such people with a broad overview of state of homeopathy and related research evidence. We sincerely hope that an objective and unprejudiced investigation of facts and studies will make a significant proportion of skeptics more open to the possibilities that homeopathy offers.

We have put together an extensive homeopathy research section at The section provides information about new theories being proposed to explain the action of homeopathic remedies, clinical research studies and other relevant information. In the coming few months, we are going to make this section even more exhaustive by providing details of nearly every homeopathic research published ever.

It would be more fun then but even now it is exhaustive enough to provide you some food for thought. Please visit our Homeopathy Research section for more details.

Homeopathy, Adakah Anda Ragu-Ragu ?

Ramai diantara masyarakt kita begitu ragu-ragu tentang rawatan homeopathy. Mereka tidak tahu banyak kebaikan yang berpihak kepada homeopathy. Memang homeopathy tidak sebaik perubatan barat tentang pembedahan atau kes-kes kritikal. Tetapi rawatan homeopathy banyak membantu menyelesaikan masalah penyakit kronik seperti asthma, migrin, gastrik, senguggut, gila meroyan, lumpuh, sakit urat saraf dan lain-lain.

Bagaimana jika perubatan biasa sudah tidak ada ubat untuk anda ? Bagaimana jika rawatan anda tidak berkesan lagi ?

WHO report on the safety issues in the preparation of homeopathic medicines

In February 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a report on the ‘Safety issues in the preparation of homeopathic medicines’. Since then I have received many messages about parts of it being against homeopathic fundamentals. I decided to give it a thorough reading and explore the philosophical and scientific problems in the document.

The first thing I realized, was that this is an excellent step towards standardization of homeopathic remedies globally. The document underlines the differences in different homeopathic pharmacopeias and the need for standardization so that the potencies prepared in different countries do not vary much. I feel that international homeopathic bodies should come together to create a new and updated pharmacopoeia, which gets accepted by all participating countries gradually.

Another good thing is that this document is very thorough and covers different aspects of quality control of homeopathic medicines in detail. It gives a good structure that homeopathic pharmaceutical companies should follow for better quality control.

One criticism that I had come across was that this report has been prepared by non-homeopaths. Contrary to this belief, I found that the report has been examined by many leading homeopathic bodies and their advice and suggestions have been incorporated in this report. The full list of people instrumental in creating this report can be seen in Annexure 1 of this report.

Now let us come to the problem areas. If you read the report alone, there is very little negative to point to. It is the annexure, where the little details that matter are hidden.

The first thing that struck me was the way homeopathic remedies were defined. Section 2.1 gives an introduction about homeopathic medicines as:

Homeopathic medicines are based on the principle that high dilutions of potentially active molecules retain a memory of the original substance.

This is not true! Homeopathic medicines are based on the principle of symptom-similarity. They ‘memory’ concept is just one of the many hypotheses put forward to explain the action of homeopathic remedies. It should not be described as a definite principle.

Apart from this, there are three potential areas of concern:

1. Comments about the safety of Nosodes, Sarcodes and Remedies derived from toxic substances.
2. First safe preparation.
3. Recommended source of animal remedies.

Potential Safety Hazard

The bias about the potential harmfulness of homeopathic remedies sourced from biological materials is stated in the preface of the report itself. Dr. Xiaorui Zhang, Coordinator, Traditional medicines, W.H.O., writes in the preface:

Sometimes, a homeopathic medicine made from source material, such as a mother tincture, is administered in the most concentrated form. Secondly, homeopathic medicines are made from a wide range of natural or synthetic sources: minerals and chemicals, but also plant materials, including roots, stems, leaves, flowers, bark, pollen, lichen, moss, ferns and algae; microorganisms, including fungi, bacteria, viruses and plant parasites; animal organs, tissues, secretions and cell lines. Human materials may include tissues, secretions, hormones, and cell lines. Some of these source materials constitute potential safety hazards, even at high dilutions.

I absolutely agree that some of these substances do constitute a safety hazard in material doses and very low attenuations, but where is the proof that they are a potential toxic hazard even at high dilutions? This is merely an assumption. There has never been a recorded case, where homeopathy remedies prepared according to the authorized pharmacopeias and practiced by qualified homeopaths have resulted in any serious injury to the patient or spread of any infection. If the W.H.O. is concerned about safety of high dilutions, they should test homeopathic remedies in high potencies for potential carriers of biological diseases, or conduct some long-term research trials for the same. Without a single known case of harmfulness of high dilutions and no research to deduce the same, the statement that homeopathic remedies can be hazardous in high dilutions, is frivolous at best!

First Safe Preparation

To minimize the possible safety hazards of homeopathic remedies, the report proposes to identify the first safe preparation of each homeopathic remedy and only the potencies above that first safe preparation should be available in the market.

This sounds like a decent idea but has many hidden implications to it. Mercury, Arsenic, Stramonium, Lachesis, Vipera etc are all toxic in crude form. The document does not specify how the first-safe preparation should be ascertained. Are the remedies deemed safe once there is not even a trace of the original substance detectable? If that be the case, we will lose most of our remedies in lower potencies (below 12C)!

One should remember that the toxicity not only depends upon the level of dilution but also upon the amount/volume of the substance consumed. So, while Lachesis or Arsenic-album 3C might have some traces of the original toxin, their toxicity actually depends upon the dose consumed.

One should also remember that most conventional drugs are ‘toxic’ in large doses. So it is not the toxicity of the original substance but the ‘dose’ that ultimately matters. Homeopathic remedies are usually given in very small quantities and as such do not have any potential toxic effect. Still, if control is required by health authorities, then two things can be done:

1. Low potencies of highly toxic substances can be made available only on prescription of a qualified and registered homeopath.
2. The packaging volume of such potencies can be restricted to a relatively safe level, say 10 ml to 30ml.

Section 3.2 deals with the animal or human derived source material. It states:

Adequate and validated procedures such as filtering, pasteurization, sterilization or precipitation have to be used depending on the individual raw material, contamination or pathogenic load, especially to establish the first safe preparation. The dilution process alone is not sufficient to establish microbial, viral or TSE safety.

This again looks reasonable but ignores the spirit of homeopathic provings. Will the Lac humanum, Lac def, Lac can be the same if prepared from pasteurized milk? Will your Bacillinum, Medorrhinum, Syphilinum, Tuberculinum etc. be the same if prepared after sterilizing the tissue or using deactivated microorganisms cultured in laboratories? (see section 4.1.5 and 5.3 of annexure 3)

I think instead of sterilizing and pasteurizing the source material, the right thing would be to test samples of the recommended first-safe preparations for any active pathogens.

Recommended source of animal remedies

Section 4.1.1 of Annexure 3 gives guidelines about the source of homeopathic remedies of animal origin. It states:

Healthy animals should be used for the production of homeopathic medicinal products unless properly justified. Whenever possible, donor animals should be held in closed breeding and production herds. Wild animals should be avoided as far as possible.

If all remedies prepared from animal source are derived from captive animals, the remedy picture of the medicine thus derived is unlikely to match the remedy picture that came up during the original proving. The diet, life-style, experiences and behavior of animals kept in captivity vary significantly from their wild counterparts. Most homeopaths believe that it is not merely the material substance, the quantifiable tissue that matters. The totality of the source also reflects in the remedy picture. If the totality of the source varies considerably from the one used in our initial provings, how can the remedy picture remain the same?

The same applies to the plant remedies too. The mineral content and the quantity and quality of the biologically active substances in a cultured plant may vary a lot from the one taken from the wild.

I think it is necessary that homeopathic bodies reflect further on these suggestions and work together to modify such recommendations coming from W.H.O.

In general there is a lot of good information in this report and every homeopath should go through it once. You can get a copy of this report here:


It is a good initiative towards standardization and acceptance of homeopathic remedies. Some points do need further clarification, deliberation and modification, to conform to homeopathic principles and practices.

If you find the issues raised above a valid concern, please take out five minutes from your busy schedule and write to your national homeopathy organizations to take up these issues with W.H.O.

Genital Wart

What is the HPV Virus and Genital Warts?

The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is one of the most common infections in the world. Commonly known as the wart virus, HPV affects a vast amount of people the world over. There are more than 100 known strains of the warts virus and hence, warts.

Many people may carry the virus for long periods of time without knowing that they are infected - something that can be confirmed with medical testing.

Genital warts may be so small they are undetectable from the human eye, or can multiply rapidly into larger clusters. They can have the appearance of small flat bumps, or cauliflower-like growths.

Genital warts in certain cases can be somewhat benign, however in others they may pose a serious health risk to both males and females. In women genital warts, vaginal warts, have been associated with cervical cancer, as well as other cancers. Whilst in males genital warts can also lead to cancer.

Genital warts are contagious. Skin to skin contact and of course any sexual contact should be avoided until the condition is eliminated or you may pass the the virus on and risk infecting others as well. It is extremely important that you pursue a genital wart treatment to both remove genital warts and inactivate HPV as soon as you are aware of their presence.

Thuja, Ant Crud, Caucticum, Dulcamara, Staphisgaria are few homeopathic remedies to eliminate all types of genital warts including: vaginal warts, penis warts, anal warts, venereal warts.

Ketuat Kemaluan

Awas jika ada bintik-bintik disekitar kemaluan sama ada di penis atau di vagina, sama ada gatal atau tidak, jika terdapat bintik-bintik yang mencurigakan, sila jumpa doktor segera, anda mungkin mengidap 'genital warts' atau ketuat kemaluan.

Jika ada bintik-bintik air atau letusan biji-biji air yang kecil sama ada satu , dua atau 4 biji benjolan berisi air jernih, itu mungkin herpes genitalis.
